He played college football at Oklahoma. Shepard was drafted by the Giants in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

As a senior, he carried the ball 28 times for 303 yards and eight touchdowns and caught 73 passes for 1,243 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Following his senior season, he was selected to the Under Armour All-American Game. In addition, Shepard competed in basketball and track at Heritage.

As a senior in 2011, he placed second in the long jump at the State Meet with a leap of 6.69 meters (21’11.5″).


Daniel Jones ran for his life and Saquon Barkley ran for a highlight-reel touchdown.

But Brian Daboll’s Giants finished flat and fell to Cooper Rush and the division rival Dallas Cowboys, 23-16, on Monday Night Football for their first loss of the season.

They also lost veteran receiver Sterling Shepard to a non-contact left knee injury on Jones’ final throw of the night: an interception to Cowboys corner Trevon Diggs after receiver David Sills had slipped on his route.

“Definitely a gut-punch ending,” a despondent Barkley said. “It’s tough.”

Jones did all he could while facing consistent and intense pressure from the Cowboys’ pass rush. He ran for 79 yards and threw for 196 in the face of 17 quarterback pressures, 12 QB hits and five sacks by Dallas’ defense.

“I’ll be a little sore tomorrow, but feeling good,” Jones said after.

But Dallas (2-1) scored 17 answered points in a 10-minute second half stretch to overcome a 13-6 Giants lead.

And the Giants (2-1) lost for the 10th time in their last 11 meetings with the Cowboys dating back to the start of the 2017 season — despite Jones doing all he could.

In Week 1, Shepard had two receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown. At the time, it did not appear to be an indicator of sustained production.

However, the Giants increased Shepard’s workload in Week 2. Against the Carolina Panthers, he was targeted a game-high 10 times. No other Giants’ receiver was targeted more than six times.

Subsequently, Shepard recorded six receptions for 34 yards. It was not a dominant performance, but the volume was certainly noteworthy.

Heading into a Monday night matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, Shepard should continue to play his increased role. There is one big question, though.
